Best & Worst of Bite Beauty Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayons

Bite Beauty Crystal Crème Shimmer Lip Crayon ($24.00 for 0.06 oz.) is supposed to offer shimmer and bold color that’s “long-wearing” and “smooth-gliding.” The majority of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation in one stroke. The texture is typically smooth and velvety without feeling wet or particularly cream-like, but they don’t drag as I used them for all-over color. They have more of a semi-matte to matte finish in terms of shine, but obviously they have quite a bit of shimmer ranging from fine shimmer to shimmer with slight to moderate sparkle. They did manage to keep everything feeling quite smooth, as I didn’t notice the shimmer when I pressed my lips together. The formula was comfortable to wear and lasted between four and six hours on me. They had a slight, lemony scent with a very subtle, almost sweet taste (but I barely detected the taste).

They are inspired by the brand’s Matte Creme Lip Crayons, which are creamy, highly-pigmented larger pencils that have more of a satin to semi-matte finish. In comparison, the Shimmer Lip Crayons have a similar glide and comfort going on my lips, but they have less creaminess and no satin sheen. They don’t feel quite as hydrating as the Matte Creme Lip Crayons, and thus far, the Shimmer finish tends to wear slightly shorter in time.

Originally it was just Cherry On Top And Fuschia Frosting but after your reviews, I think Ross Glacé will be good for work and I want to try Sugar Flower—which is slightly outside my comfort zone…I’m worried it’d be too Mauve but looks more pink on you than I thought and it’s on your recommended list! (Love your rounds ups btw!!)

While I have never been a fan of lip product in crayon form, I purchased the sugar flower and mauve marzipan shades after your initial reviews . I really like them!
